Roger Federer sounds about as good as a 37-year-old can be. Speaking after a 61, 61 opening match win over Cameron Norrie at the Hopman Cup exo, the Swiss says he’s injury-free and ready for the new season.
“I’m happy in all aspects of my game,” Federer said. “Things were working. Footwork, offensive play, serve return it was all there so I think it was it was a great match for me.
“Still early days but you know I feel like I’ve played some sets and some points obviously already in practice so you kind of know where you are,” he said. “But this is a sort of a confirmation to know that you actually have been feeling pretty good in practice, so I guess what you’re seeking here is sort of confirmation to see like is everything there that you thought you it was or is there actually any fixing still to be done in the coming weeks. And so far we’re still learning.”
Ahead for Federer and his Swiss team is a meeting with team USA and Serena Williams on Tuesday in Perth.
He is not scheduled to play an official tour match until his Australian Open title defense.
